Went on a field trip today - 'over the mountain' as they say 'round these parts. Three adults took a group of 5 kids to a vocational rehab facility in the Shenandoah Valley. Pretty drive, pretty day. Big bus, 8 people. What a riot.
We had a good time away from school, and best of all got to take our time eating lunch. Normal people don't realize that school kids and teachers have about 20 minutes to scarf down lunch every day. Not good for the digestion. Most teachers I know look forward to professional days because it means we can eat out for lunch, and take an hour to do so.
Did I dress in holiday style for the trip? You betcha! Today was a fleecy top with angels and snowflakes. Snowflake earrings and (of course) festive socks.
